Mike said: ‘I have been holding this as part of my ongoing fundraising for the charity for the last 6 years, as my way of keeping the boys memories alive as well as giving something back to this brilliant local charity, which supported my family for the many years that the boys attended for respite due to their life-shortening illness.
Helen & Douglas House helped us to live our life’s as a family and as individuals. When we went to the hospice, we didn’t have to explain ourselves to anyone, we could be ourselves as we were welcomed with open arms, helping give us the chance to find a balance in our lives, which was normally difficult and hectic. The environment is not clinical like a hospital, it is homely and welcoming, a fun place to be.
That is why I want to help in any way I can, to support the future of this amazing hospice, which does so much for countless families, to ensure their doors remain open for all the future generations of families who will be going through the same experiences we went through, as I know how invaluable their support was to us.’
